Thank you for using the compost bucket in the kitchen!  We are saving a lot of food from the landfill and are creating great ingredients for our spring garden soil.  All food scraps and paper towels, napkins,  should go into this bucket and then it can then be emptied into the bin outside the kitchen door. Please continue to help our Mother Earth by returning food to the earth!
